the sparkle,

the glitter,

the “princess”

that sits in the heart of my baby girl is nothing short of MAGICAL and i am forever grateful to catch a glimpse of it.

more from concept two of this shoot coming soon when we get cheeks #1’s part but obviously the second i got this dress from ms joy we had to shoot.  however the weather has been against us.  as we were leaving austin after the holidays, like literally packing the car, the sun peeked out from the clouds for a brief moment.  A MOMENT WAS ALL I NEEDED, and as you can imagine she was already in the dress as any princess would be, ha…well we got a total of 15 sunny but cold minutes for out texas bones and this is what we got…well to be fair i could probably post another set and i might but for now enjoy these little bits of sparkles…


as for the dress because i know y’all are all drooling over it….

oh joy my sweet friend joy, SHE IS THE BEAUTIFUL MIND AND SEWING FINGERS BEHIND THIS DRESS…SNAZZIEDRAWERS...i am happy to say i “knew her before she was famous” haha…but really there are not enough words for me to use when talking about her and the awesome-ness that simply oozes from her brain…she is, to put short and sweet so i don’t go on and on and on, ha SHE IS A CREATIVE GENIUS!  i adore her as a person, she inspires me creatively as an artist and she amazes me as mom running her own successful business.  gah, she is pretty amazing

Bubble Blower + Glitter Thrower + Magic Maker

Hey yall!  I'm, Shalonda, the eyes behind the camera of chubby cheek photography. I am a nationally published child photographer, based out of Houston Texas, where I am drowning in glitter + princess dresses with my two daughters, also known as the cheeks girls, and the love of my life, daddy cheeks.  I am inspired by REAL life + the magic of childhood and I truly believe that the in between moments mean the most... even when that means stepping on a Barbie shoe before I have had my morning coffee!
